Nanotechnology based gas multispectral sensing system for environmental control and protection

Objective

IAQ is a crucial factor for human’s apperception. It is proven that air quality affects the health and the well-being of people. IAQSense focuses on R&D to develop a new nanotechnology based on innovative sensor system, miniaturized, low cost for mass produced sensors.
The main technology innovation is based on surface ion mobility dynamics, it separates each gas component and its concentration like a mass spectrometer and allows high sensitivity fast multi-gas detection, in a way never seen before.
IAQSense Project will characterize, monitor and improve IAQ in an innovative way. To enlarge the field of detection, the sensor system includes in total 3 patented technologies with biomolecule detection and security related nanotechnologies.
IAQsense objectives are to develop sensor systems and reach TRL6, including all electronics, pattern detection firmware and validate these systems and their impact in real environments (building, health, hazards scenarios). Ability for mass production and low cost are mandatory requirements. Developments include integrated IC for real time gas pattern processing with special architecture for low power and energy management; test and validation; predictive numerical models; implementation into buildings; preparation for industrialization.
IAQSense brings a unique solution for VOC sensing in a growing sensor market and is participating in the innovation and European competitiveness while providing a strategic contribution to the European industry. IAQSense will-provide a major step in analysis and control of IAQ on every place, home, office, vehicles, and contributes to the optimum reduction in energy consumption, finally, it will pave the way for integration into portable devices for the best of future applications in health and security.
The consortium is composed of 4 SMEs, 3 industrial, 3 research institutes. The project will last 3 years and will deliver a complete sensor system.
